For the second month in a row, the iconic Watergate in Washington’s Foggy Bottom neighborhood leads the way in the number of units sold. The midcentury modern cooperative complex had three closings in September. Notably, Unit #421 was the third-highest sale for the month at $1,875,000. The three-bedroom, 3.5-bath residence with a library/home office and 3,036 square feet of beautifully designed living space also has a sweeping 40-foot long balcony with wooden flooring and river views. There were three buildings with two sales each. They are: The Ritz-Carlton West End in Washington’s West End neighborhood, Yale Steam Laundry in Mount Vernon Triangle, and Atrium in Arlington’s Rosslyn community.
Among these sales is a double honoree in other categories this month. Unit #8C at Ritz-Carlton West End was both the fifth highest sale as well as the fifth highest price per square foot. The two-bedroom, 2.5-bath residence with 1,846 sq. ft. of sunny living space closed at $1,650,000, translating to $893.82 per square foot. Features include Brazilian cherry herringbone floors, a large gourmet kitchen with recessed appliances, two private balconies, and marble baths. Unit #210 at Yale Steam Laundry might not be particularly large at 738 square feet, but it is very attractive with its blonde floors, open modern kitchen, and giant windows. The one-bedroom, one-bath flat had the month’s fifth highest list-to-sales ratio, selling for $475,000 or 99.89 percent of the original asking price. The closings at Atrium were for $490,000 and $480,000 respectively.
